Interesting Idea. I see the firepower (assuming its a bullet) but not the peace. cool perspective. The whole of the shot is kind of blurry, even the base of the bullet which seems to be the focus. the horizontal line is slanted, I would have straightened it out. Kind of a boring pic though.

A few things I see that could have made this better in my opinion:
The dark radius corner in the upper left is a bit of a distraction - a tighter crop would have helped.
There isn't a strong area in focus. The shell gets close partway up, but still lacking clarity. May have been better to start the sharpness/focus low and graudate out into soft focus.
A dead-center main focal point is a bit iffy in a composition. A different angle or point of view may help in the future.

Where is the peace? I would have used a white flag or a something like that. The black right upper corner was not really necesary.

i find this hard to tell what it is exactly. a little OOF too.

This is pretty neat. I think it would have been a little better if the bullet was in focus to the tip. I don't know, just my opinion.

reasonable oxymoron. not a very exciting picture. very centered, colors are not exciting and the DOF works against you by robbing the shot of the texture of the brick. 4

I think a different background would help here. Especially something people would associate with peace.
